Patient reviews for Dr. Antoanella Calame
I was late and they still saw me, Nd wven with me being late they did not rush me at all! Such a kind and caring staff! They recommended only the best options. Highly, highly recommend.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
The doctor I saw was quick and helpful, but it was a bit of a wait between first being taken back then seeing her.
My Husband & I were able to get a last minute appointment and we are in love with this place! Mena did a full body screening and removed a growth on my eyelid--excellent work! Dr. Calame's excision was painless. Hubby gave Dr. Blake high marks for great care. A great team of caring professionals--Thank you!
I loved her energy! It was my first visit today for my acne, so we'll see the results within couple of months but she was so helpful already! I tried so many dermatologists in the past and they were all after the money, just from seeing her once I can tell that Dr. Calame wants the best for her patients and she only cares about treating them! I'm so glad I found her and would highly recommend her! She's great! -Gozde G.
